Handprints and footprints make some of our favorite Mother's Day crafts. Our kids are small for such a short time that it's nice to have a way to remember it. This Mother's Day craft is a simple paper craft that easily transforms their prints into a happy butterfly that is sure to make Mom smile. We used "Flappy Mother's Day!" as our card saying because the intended mom is a bit silly, but we also kicked around using "You make my heart soar" and "Thank you for helping me fly".
